I think I has decided on the War Eagle 754 VS boat due to the fact that is the longest stick steering boat I have fund. I also found that the livewell is mounted on the side instead of being in the middle of the boat as in most stick steering models. I am going to check this week with area dealers and see if I can make a deal on one. I do know that they are more expensive than the Tritons and Xpress'. Anyone have this model where they give the pros and cons? Thanks in advance

I have that hull. And it does rode good. I bet you will love it.
2 bad they do not make the 1860 with a stick steer. But then again War-Eagle builds them like you won't them. And just may make up a 1860 stick steer for you.
Nice deeper hull and an extra 8" wide in the floor.

I picked up my new War Eagle 754 VS and took it out this weekend. Smmoth riding boat and I am really impressed with it. Lots of room in the boat. Stick steering handles excellent and is very easy to use.

Do you still have your War Eagle 754 VS? If so how are you liking it. Have you found any pro or con about it? Could post some picture of it? I know this is a old thread but I was looking for some info on this war eagle model. Thank you for your time.

Midnight .... I don't think you're going to get a reply from Bobcat999, as it appears that he is no longer listed as a member.

I will, however, leave this thread open ... in case someone/anyone else happens to have this boat, & is willing to answer your questions.

I had the same hull but with a tiller motor. It rode better then the 20ft SLDV I had at the same time. Even sitting up were you would sit in a stick steer boat hitting boat waves. It was a good ride.
Theres a guy not far from me that had one for a few years. He loved it and always bragged how it was the best boat he ever had. But he sold it because of health issues. There's days I wish I had went with one, for the ease of fishing and not having to get up and move around. That's what bothers me is the up and down to stow and deploy the trolling motor.
Good luck in your search, if I run up on one can get pictures of it I will try my best to get some for you.

I just bought a new Xpress HD16PF-SS with 40 Yamaha. I did price the War Eagle and it was higher than my boat. I won't get it until the 25th. I went to the factory in Hot Springs and saw the boat I will get being made. After I saw the quality and how they were made, it convinced me to order one.

Have a good evening.

I'm sure you will like the Express. But when I priced both and I mean priced them with each item that was on both. I got so much more with War-Eagle it was unreal. Plus with War-Eagle you get a 12 degree hull and at the time Express was only I think a 6 degree. ride is way different.
But good luck with the new boat and hope you catch lots of fish out of it.

Looks to me that the Excell is almost a flat bottom boat, Don't see how it could ride better then the war-eagle? And sure not going to ride with the War-Eagle 861 Predator but then again its not in the class as these boats also. From looking at the pictures of the back of the Excell hull its almost a flat hull? But I will say I have never seen the crappie Excell hull. But have seen there duck boat and know they can and do sink. Buddy of mine sank his during duck season this winter.

A friend of mind has a Excell and I have fished out of it. I don't care for the ride at all. I didn't even consider the Excell just for that reason. On the other hand, the War Eagle and Xpress is far superior in quality than the Excell IMO. I might have considered a War Eagle if I didn't have budget restraints. I am not knocking the Excell, it's just not the boat for me.
